Take the other long end of the chenille stem and position it perpendicular on top of the feet. Slide one 12mm starflake bead onto the chenille stem. Next slide the two 18mm starflake beads, aligning and intersecting beads in place.

Form 2 paws with the chenille stem, twisting 2 loops like you did for the feet. Slide the last 12mm starflake bead onto the chenille stem over the paws. Slide the 18mm round facet bead on for the head.

Slide four of the 4mm facet beads onto the chenille stem. Bend the stem and slide four more 4mm facet beads. Twist chenille stem to secure beads. This forms one ear. Repeat with the remaining eight 4mm facet beads for the other ear. Tuck end of chenille stem in so it won’t poke you.
